the sudden stop in the flow of tourists because of koronautbruddet means for the couple’s part means that they lose six weeks of the season. Six weeks is 30 percent of the revenue for a business that has about 100 guests on long voyages in the year, Ane says.

” We have some loyal customers and therefore we already know that the guests are not necessarily lost, but that they want to come here later. There are others in the industry who have it far worse.

The 84 dogs are normal at this time inside the high season. A bit like a bunch of professional cross-country skiers, they have now topped form, but is without a job to go to.

” We thought that it is very low for the dogs. They are social and, together with the people throughout the winter. They are topptrente dogs that are accustomed to being on a long trip, and draw every day.

Without the guests, it would be difficult to give them the trips they need. Therefore, let Ane out a post on Facebook:

“Will you lend a well-trained and enthusiastic husky in a period of time?”

It wasn’t long before the phone began to ring.

Ane leave out a post on Facebook in hopes that someone could help them with the dogs.
